New Zealand specialty printer Fuzed joined Trent Nankervis of CMYKhub in stepping up to take the second brand new Scodix Ultra from the Currie stand at Printex. The Scodix Ultra, a new version of the original digital enhancement printer was chosen as Print21 Hot Pick at the PrintEx show.

Father and son, Jason and Matt Mills, traded in their original Scodix to take advantage of the higher speed and extra automation on the Ultra. The Israeli-developed digital coating technology fits in well with the award-winning Auckland company’s focus on enhanced printing.

Straight from winning eight gold medals and seven highly commended prizes at this year’s Pride in Print, as well as being recognised as Best in Process, Fuzed is developing the potential of digital varnishing and coating. A long-time digital producer it operates a HP Indigo 5600.

The company is well known for its production of lenticular printing, exporting over 80 per cent, much of it to Australia and the USA. Both father and son confirm the company is set for further growth following the takeover of another Auckland printer, Printing Express last November.

The second Scodix Ultra went to Trent Nankervis, of trade-only printer CMYKhub. It will join the company’s first Scodix in production as soon as it can be delivered.

The rapid take up of digital enhancement technology is opening up a new range of work for commercial printers. In the case of CMYKhub it allows the trade only printer to supply varnished products within its normal production process.
